We are humbled, and filled with appreciation, for the dozens of contributions from generous souls making it possible for ShaKa Studios to create a total of five Memorial Foot Lockers for presentation to families who made the ultimate sacrifice during the 2nd Annual Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Ride.
The chests were delivered to VFW Post 8785 in Mesquite, Texas on Friday by Efrain Moreno of ERMR’s Relocation Services. Thank you Efain for delivering the chests with great care and reverence.
A special thank you to the Franey family of Northern California, whose generous last minute contribution made it possible to create two of the memorial foot lockers.
2nd Annual Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Motocyle Ride
Cpl William Amundson
Sgt. 1st Raymond Munden
2nd Lt. Johnny Craver
Our Heartfelt Thanks
The Sunday portion of the ride was postponed until next week due to severe weather. We hope to share images from the tributes to Cpl Tyler S. Trovillion and 2nd Lt Peter H. Burks after the postponed ride is complete.
When we undertook this project, we had no idea that dozens of people would rally around the cause with contributions and social media exposure. We just knew it was the right thing to do.
Thank you to Warren Williamson of Tribute to Fallen Soldiers NW for organizing the ride and graciously sharing the photos from the Fallen Solder Home Visits.
Words can not express the gratitude we feel towards the families of Cpl Amundson, Sgt Munden, Lt Craver, Cpl Trovillion and Lt Burks for the sacrifices they have made.
Shane and Kandas Rodarte
